ICMA appoints new Chief Executive and President

(Montreux, Switzerland) The International Capital Market Association (ICMA) announces the appointments of Martin Scheck as Chief Executive and René Karsenti as President, effective August 1, 2009. This combination strengthens ICMAs focus on the development of the standard market practices which are an essential part of creating more integrated capital markets.
Mr. Scheck will lead ICMAs activities in promoting the development and efficient functioning of the international capital market. He has been a Board member of ICMA since 2004 and is the Chairman of its Audit, Compliance and Governance Committee. He joins the Association from UBS AG, Zurich, where he is currently Managing Director and Head of Swiss Fixed Income since 2001.
René Karsenti who has held the post of Executive President since May 2006 will become President of the Association, with primary responsibilities to represent ICMAs interests in its interaction with governments, regulatory bodies, other trade associations and international organisations together with Mr. Scheck.
Hans-Joerg Rudloff, ICMAs Chairman, said: These appointments represent a considerable strengthening of ICMAs executive management and enhance its services to its membership and the market. Martin Scheck has the skills and experience to deliver further improved operational efficiency. ICMA will also benefit further from René Karsentis knowledge, expertise and established relationships.
The announcement was made at the Associations AGM in Montreux after the membership confirmed the Associations mission and objectives as a self regulatory organisation and trade body.
